SM Commercial Can Help You

Getting the right level of legal support for your business doesn't have to be difficult. Whether you need a full, out-sourced HR solution or extra support for your pre-existing HR team, we can help you and your business.

Zee explains:

Employment law is complex and an area of law that is regularly changing. Getting things wrong, not seeking advice from a professional or tackling employee issues in an inefficient or ineffective manner can have grave consequences. Added to this are the financial implications, to a business, of time lost to addressing these issues including compensation you may have to pay to employees who bring a claim against you or the business.

These issues can be avoided by engaging with the right people, here at SM Commercial, who will provide high quality practical assistance to help you navigate the minefield of employment law and HR procedure.

What you say

"This comes with great praise for the services Simpson Millar LLP provided to us for a complicated TUPE Transfer which included 14 separate individuals. The team at Simpson Millar LLP were very professional, with their presentation to the Tribunal, which was excellent. I would have no issues with recommending them as an outstanding and helpful firm of Solicitors." - Mr D Charnley - Zentec Security Ltd
